Customiser Fixes The Biggest Problem With Skylanders Toys

While the plastic characters Toys For Bob created to populate the world of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure are certainly cute, colourful, and well-made, zero points of articulation makes them less action figure, more tiny statue. Action figure customizer supreme Jin Saotome brings four Skylanders to life in a whole new way.

With a steady hand and an eye for toy mechanics, Jin has managed to transform Prism Break, Drobot, Chop Chop, and Hex from toys you look at to toys you play with, capable of posing both on and off of their elemental stands. While I'm quite fond of the collection I've amassed thus far, thanks to Jin's work I'll never look at them the same again. Move, damn you!

Check out Jin's page for more shouts of the fab four, as well as examples of some of the wonderful things he's done with other toy lines.

    You know they're gonna release the same toys BUT MOVEABLE, for (of course) a higher price.
    Then there'll be the ones that have lights in them, and then the uber elite CE versions where they both light up and move.

      Doubt it. Most of the people who buy them do so for the in-game characters (from those I've talked to). The base is the part that contains the RFID chip, the thing on top is just gravy. Extra $$$ gravy.

    I think the next generation of toys will move and cost more, but why bother putting lights in em?

    But yeah, as much as I see it as a really cool idea, I see it as a cash grab too, when the toy tower costs $50 for what is a castle shaped box for 8 toys... $8 a figure and $100 a game, it looks to be so expensive. And for anyone who says you only need the starter kit, Imagine playing Pokemon with just the starter Pokemon (Admittedly you can grind it to L100).

    In a way it reminds me of Monster in my Pocket, the little rubber monsters from my childhood.

    But back on track to the guy who made em Action figures that is awesome work, it also illustrates just how cool some of these things look.

      Try $14 a figure. These things put pokemon booster packs to shame.

    That.
    Is completely awesome.

      Nice color choice on the blog. It is aelrly easy on my eyes and I have bad eyes too so that’s a aelrly big compliment lol

    JBHiFi had it for $77 which is as cheap as eBay had for UK import.
    EB wanted $100
    Its wrapped & under the tree for the 4 year old (ok ok its for me as well)
    $ per hour it will be cheaper than most other money spent on the boy....

      what is the name of the product on ebay

    Does Anyone Know When These Custom Movable Toys Come Out?

    When are they coming out and when they do they will be at least 14 dollars each
